The Eyeglasses Shop: The Musical

This morning I dreamed I was writing a play about a glasses store.

The premise was that this woman had inherited an optical shop from her uncle and it was about to go broke. So, they decided to hire a sketchy optometrist who would tell ALL the patients they needed new glasses. This way they'd make money. Here's the first page. I was writing it in my head while people acted it.

Act1 Scene1:

Setting, an optical store. The decor is dated and most of the display cases are empty.

Enter Sketchy Optometrist: (He has a mohawk, facial piercings and is wearing a grungy white lab coat).

So, are you an optometrist or an ophthalmologist?

Sketchy Optometrist:

Seriously, did you go to medical school, or not.

Sketchy optometrist:
I'm sorry, I really don't remember what it was.

Niece's Assistant:
how are we going to buy all this inventory to make a go of this?

I've got some guys that are going to loan me some money.

Enter loan shark. The scene starts to fade and an adorable 21 month old girl enters a light filled bedroom.

Mommy! Mommy! Mommy! Enter Kaylee and Rich and the dream ended.
